    Default Amazon Prime TV

    I'm sure plenty of you lot are subscribers to this.
    Been a Netflix user for years, NowTV on and off etc
    Just got a free trial for Amazon Prime TV and initial thoughts about the UI/APP is what a load of shite.

    Unless I just havent found everything yet, it has hardly any categories or sort of structure at all.
    It seems unless I search for things and find them that way its pretty useless ?!?!?!?

    e.g. On Netflix I could go to "Horror" and browse through etc and find some mind numbing shite to watch.

    Not a fan.

    Should I stick with it?

    Doesnt seem to have much exclusive content worth watching tbh and I binned the Grand Tour off after 2 episodes ;-)

    imho Netflix is far superior at this point.

    We have it as we have prime and music but tbh never use it at all.
    We had a Netflix but didnít use that either.

    Plex is the way to go mate

    Prime's UI is a fucking piss take. It's frustrating because it actually has a shitload of content. The best way is to spend an hour going through stuff and adding it to your favourites.

    Went through a stage of watching the walking dead, and it lists every season separately, and in this instance, not even in order. Jokers.

    Prime Video sucks, I was hoping it would be good because it has Gold Rush and stuff that I watch unlike Netflix, but how they have come after Netflix with a huge budget and missed the mark is beyond me.

    we use prime for delivery, so I just see it as a free service.
    worth getting smartdns though, both netlflix and prime US content is tonnes better. I have it setup on the router so all devices on wifi hit american versions.

    (if anyone does try it, using this link will get me some extra free months, https://www.smartdnsproxy.com/?afid=cfd2443ce6b0 )
    cheers guys

    We use smartdnsproxy they have a free vpn service if you take out a smartdns plan.
    I think we paid something silly like £6 for 2 years service and itís brilliant the speed of their vpn is fantastic.

    well worth a look if you need a vpn or smartdns.

    I use both Amazon and Netflix.
    I find the Prime UI pretty good to be honest.
    I tend to use it more on my Kindle Fire and Android phone than the Firestick.
    A quick search of Horror, Comedy etc returns good results. These can also be filtered by Prime or Downloadable.

    I'm fairly happy with the Prime video UI personally but we use it on a HTPC via a web browser. It works pretty well.
